Bill Williamson of ESPN.com made his way to St. Joseph, MO for Kansas City Chiefs training camp this week. While there, he talked with Chiefs RB Jamaal Charles who told him of the 2010 season, "I want to make history."

Williamson says Charles didn't explain what he meant but I think you get the idea: He's ready for another big year.

"My goal is to have a high per-carry average," Charles told Williamson. "I want to average 6, 7 yards a carry. I was proud of last year’s average. ... I just want to go out and make explosive plays. I love doing that and helping this team with the big play. ... Hopefully we can do that a lot this year."

Six or seven yards per carry is a helluva goal but he racked up 5.9 yards per carry last year so it's attainable.

Charles will have to shoot for goals that involve yards per carry because predicting his total yards is a crapshoot, at best, right now.

It'll be Charles and Thomas Jones in 2010 but we'll have to wait and see how much we see of each.
